Customizing Alert Threshold

  1. Users can customize the alert threshold for when your system alarms on an individual. The CDC defines a fever as an internal body temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. We recommend setting your alert threshold to 99.2, to account for the difference between internal and external body temperature, and any margin of error.
    If you wish to change this setting, you can:
    1. Click on the config dropdown, then select config alg
    2. Edit the Temp 1 temperature under Alarm
    3. DO NOT change any other settings on this page
